Lesley Adkins, Roy Adkins:
The Keys of Egypt: The Race to Read the Hieroglyphs - Livres de poche

2001, ISBN: 0006531458

[SR: 532875], Paperback, [EAN: 9780006531456], HarperCollins, HarperCollins, Book, [PU: HarperCollins], 2001-09-03, HarperCollins, 335pp, softcover, Harper Collins, London 2001 Exciting account of the race to decipher the Egyptian hieroglyphs and its winner Jean-Francois Champollion. As new., Jean-François Champollion's biography is neatly interwoven with Napoleonic history and the functions of Egyptian hieroglyphs in The Keys of Egypt. A gifted bookseller's son born in Revolutionary France, Champollion was to become "gripped by energetic enthusiasm" for Egypt. By the age of 12, he was studying several ancient languages and amid a "wave of Egyptomania", he would beat rivals to discover the key to deciphering hieroglyphs. If this was a race, it was a marathon. The breakthrough came after "20 years of obsessive hard work", not through the quick fix solution often thought to have been provided by the Rosetta Stone. The Keys of Egypt details Champollion's life and work, which was hampered by politics, poverty and an almost hypochondriacal series of health problems. Its sources include letters and journals, the authors having undertaken researches in major libraries and museums. Chapters on Champollion's travels in Italy and Egypt include a good smattering of excerpts from his writings. Although no bibliography is given, there is a helpful passage on various levels of further reading. Highly instructive and fast-paced, The Keys of Egypt is perhaps less dramatic than it might be in portraying troubled times and ground-breaking discovery. It is, however, a clearly expressed and wide-ranging book explaining the complexity of hieroglyphic interpretation and revealing the man whose achievements "meant the discovery of a whole new civilization". --Karen Tiley, 268021, Historical, 758978, BCE-500 AD, 758980, 501-1000, 758982, 1001-1500, 758984, 1501-1700, 758986, 1701-1900, 758988, 1901 Onwards, 268022, Britain, 758964, United States, 758932, Countries & Regions, 758922, Royalty, 758928, Social & Urban History, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 759012, Countries & Regions, 268041, Political, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271242, Egypt, 271237, Ancient History & Civilisation, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276434, Egyptian, 771726, By Period, 276416, Archaeology, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276421, By Region, 276416, Archaeology, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271389, Other Historical Subjects, 278066, Discovery & Exploration, 277011, Heraldry, 271564, Historiography, 275757, History of Education, 278290, History of Engineering & Technology, 270830, History of Medicine, 772136, History of Science, 271408, Holocaust, 772066, Slavery, 271436, Theory & Methods, 772142, Witchcraft, 276593, Women in History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271191, Northern, 271173, Africa, 771708, Countries & Regions, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
